Great action, we all loved it, we were a group of 6 people. Well-made stories and authentic actors. The only big drawbacks: Clearly too many people are being sent from room to room, even for people who have no problem with crowds and close people, this was borderline. One of our group is already out of the event after the first room, due to the tightness and a second one had a real panic attack. It doesn't have to be! Sometimes less is more

Good concept- the photo at the end is guaranteed to give you cramps from laughing!

Didn't have to wait at all (maybe we got lucky). We snagged a fun group and when we took the photo at the end we all cramped up from laughing so hard. The dramatic components were very good. A nice way to learn- a different way of experiencing Hamburg's history.

The dungeon's fun, it's scary, and the actors are great!

I really enjoyed the dungeon tour. It's not suited for people who get scared easily. There are many moments where it goes pitch black. You're led through the dungeon and brought straight into its history. But the historical aspect is relatively minor. Though it is quite scary. It's exciting from start to finish since each room has something new to offer. Unfortunately even though we had booked our tickets in advance we still had to wait for a long while.
